    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Should I just go Intel?

    Thanks for that chart, very useful. It is "just" a 5800h in the competitor PC. But if the TDP quoted by Macco is correct, I think gaming performance on the 3070 would also be better. Tricky. 105w 3080 max q vs 3070 130w.

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Should I just go Intel?

    Yeah it did sound a little high. I guess they were mistaken. With that TDP, I'll probably get better performance out of the 130W 3070. Pretty much what I'd heard, lol. As Macco says though, maybe not too bad in a laptop?

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Should I just go Intel?

    11th Gen? I've not heard great things about them Desktop wise. Also seems to generally run hotter than AMD these days which is best avoided in a laptop.

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Should I just go Intel?

    Seems there's no plans for a Clevo chassis with Ryzen so I'm a bit stuck as to what to get now. Been without a nice gaming laptop since returning my last 2070 TongFang Recoil. The only option for me here is Intel, which wouldn't be my first choice. It would be mostly for gaming, but also light...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Real Users' Benchmarks - Rank of PCS Laptops

    Sure. It was called the Defiance II. Defiance Series: 15.6". Dispatched - 25-01-2016 It also seems I benchmarked my TongFang laptop as well before I returned it for the last time. http://www.3dmark.com/fs/18399486 That was just called a Recoil 17.3" RTX 2070. Might have had a number like the...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST 17.3" RTX 3000 SERIES LAPTOPS AT PCS.

    Yeah that's TongFang again. Last experience with one of those has left me dead set against buying another. PCS' Clevo models have always been great for me. Thanks all the same though. Think i mentioned in another post, they're competitively priced.

    So now I'm a bit stuck. A PCS Clevo with Intel or go on the hunt again for a competitor that has Ryzen :x

    Such a shame. Don't think we're gonna get a Ryzen model in Clevo flavour. Think this'll be the first time in a long while I've not bought a PCS laptop. Valeon seems like great value, but they're cheap for a reason :D

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Ionico vs Defiance

    Hope you're right. Another Ryzen 30xx laptop is now in stock again. They don't stick around long. Gonna wait a little bit longer..

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST 17.3" RTX 3000 SERIES LAPTOPS AT PCS.

    I wish I could trust TF again but reliability wise, in my experience, they're dog egg level. 3 total motherboard failures in about a year, meanwhile my old Clevo 555m that I gave away to a relative is still going. Along with my own 970m model that I've gone back to using for now since refunding...

    I expected as much. Shame.

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST 17.3" RTX 3000 SERIES LAPTOPS AT PCS.

    I'm assuming yes, but is the Ryzen Ionico still TongFang? Not sure how much longer I should wait for a Ryzen 30xx combo in a Clevo. Some tempting offers from competitors atm.

    Only ever had that one TongFang and it was terrible, lol. That's why I wouldn't go for one again. Multiple total motherboard failures..
